* Fox News meets the press, and things get testy. Or it’s practically a lovefest. Either way, FNC trots out Karl Rove, and someone has the poor manners to ask why he’s talking to TV critics and not testifying before Congress.

* Fox the entertainment channel announces that creators will have two chances a year, not just one, to pitch shows about hooking up people to lie detectors.

* Cleveland Brown, a black guy voiced by a white guy, gets a white neighbor voiced by a black guy. We have truly entered a postracial society, those of us who live in cartoons.

* Don’t you wish the commercial breaks in your favorite shows were six or eight minutes shorter? If you’re J.J. Abrams, you can just demand it.
